"Smart, exciting, and timely, A.D.D. is one part prophecy, one part critique, and one part action story, a heady mix." —Cory Doctorow
“ADD’s laser-guided smart missile zeroes in on the black undercurrents of gaming culture, celebrity and the pharmaceutical industry to target the secret wars being waged behind our monitor screens. In a world defined by ubiquitous media, best-selling wargames, autistic disorders and the commodification and exploitation of youth, Doug Rushkoff and artist Goran Sudzuka vivisect the zeitgeist with a sleek tale of tomorrow’s children, that’s part social sci-fi and part “X-Men” for the PlayStation generation.”—Grant Morrison

Yet nothing is quite what it seems. When Lionel, one of the teen gamers, witnesses a death he thinks is real, he begins to question everything he knows. With fellow gamers Takei and Kasinda, Lionel embarks on a journey to find the truth about the A.D.D.
"A.D.D." is a slick production with beautiful artwork and coloring, yet the overall effect is somewhat lacking. The ending feels rushed, as if some pages of the story were mistakenly edited out during production. Somehow, I feel the author has much more to say but didn't have the space to expand his complex ideas. It's a pity, because a lot of effort went into the creation of the world that has its own unique slang and technology.
It is almost certain that "A.D.D." will be popular among hardcore gamers and readers who can't get enough of works reminiscent of "Ender's Game." Personally, I am now more interested in reading the author's theories on autism and mass media than any possible sequels.
